Navneet worked long hours to develop her artisanal soup business—growing from a small food truck to a chain of over three stores across B.C.

As her business expanded, so did her staff—going from just herself to a team of over 15 customer service representatives, in addition to her production crew. Although her brand attracted many job applicants, not many employees stuck around for long. Finally, an exit survey revealed why: top staff were looking for similar work that offered group health and retirement savings benefits.

Attracting top talent can be a challenge—retaining excellent employees is even more difficult. Having group health and retirement benefits gives an advantage over your competitors. It also helps your staff achieve their dreams, while they help you build yours.
